Niuean language week

Fakaalofa lahi atu!

This year, we celebrate Niuean language week from Monday 16 October - Sunday 22 October.

Niuean language week provides us an opportunity to celebrate all things Niuean.

The theme for this year’s Niuean Language Week is ‘Ponataki, Tukutaula ke Mauokafua e Vagahau Niue’, which translates into ‘Bind, Anchor to Firmly Uphold the Vagahau Niue’. 

This year, AUT is supporting the newly-developed United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by using our Pacific language weeks as a platform to generate discussions.

For Niuean language week, we are talking about  SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals, and in particular, looking how youth are important in this partnership.

“To achieve this goal we need to use our voices as a platform for change. As someone who wants to work in journalism, I know the importance of the media; there are so many resources in our digital world for our Niuean youth to use as a way of contributing towards change.”

"Ka eke kua fai amaamanakiaga ke hiki e tau puhala gahua ti kua lata foki a tautolu ke fai talahauaga.

Ko au ko e tagata tohi mo e fakapuloa tala. Ti maama lahi e au e aoga he tau puhala foou nei. Ti ka eke ke fai hikihikiaga.

Kua lata he ha tautolu tau atuhau tupu hake ke fakaaoaga mo lagomatai aki e tau hikiaga foou pehe nei."
